Delhi has been reporting the worst air quality this season.

New Delhi:

The Delhi government has told the Supreme Court that it is ready to take steps like complete lockdown to fight air pollution, but adds that it will have only a limited impact.

A lockdown is needed for the neighbouring areas of Delhi too, which come under the National Capital Region (NCR), the Arvind Kejriwal government has said in its affidavit.

“The Delhi government is ready to take steps like complete lock down to control local emissions. However, such a step would be meaningful if it is implemented across the NCR areas in neighbouring states. Given Delhi’s compact size, a lock down would have limited impact on the air quality regime,” says the affidavit.

“We are ready to consider this step if the same is mandated for the entire NCR areas by the Government of India or by the Commission for Air Quality Management in National Capital Region and Adjoining Areas,” said the Delhi government.

Listing the steps taken so far, Delhi said no physical classes would be held in schools this week and government officials would work from home. Private offices have also been advised to Work From Home. Construction sites will be shut for three days.
